Newcastle planning new contract for Bruno Guimaraes amidst transfer interest

Bruno Guimaraes

Newcastle United are apparently concerned about the growing interest for midfielder Bruno Guimaraes by several top clubs. They hope to tie the 24-year-old down to a new long-term contract.

The Brazilian midfielder arrived at Newcastle from Lyon for a fee of £40m. His strong displays have been key to Newcastle’s mercurial successes so far. He has firmly established himself as one of the best Midfielders in the League. He is thus being targeted by several top Premier League and European clubs.

Chelsea have reportedly been ‘studying a proposal’ for the Brazilian. Arsenal and Barcelona are also some of the reported suitors for the Brazilian international. Newcastle however are keen to retain the midfielder’s services. They consider him the face of their new project.

Speaking on the matter, reputed reporter Fabrizio Romano had this to say:

“They [Newcastle] know that any top clubs are keeping an eye on Bruno Guimaraes. We have rumours on Chelsea, but I’m told there are also other clubs in England prepared to attack Bruno because they consider him a top player for the summer after the World Cup.

“But at the moment, Newcastle feel confident, they want to offer him a new deal, they want Bruno to be one of the faces of the project.

“They know that he is happy in Newcastle, and so they will offer him a new contract. This is the plan and they want Bruno to stay [for the] long term.

“So it’s true that there is an alert, because many important English clubs are there. But Bruno is happy there and so Newcastle will try to extend again his contract and [get him] to sign a new deal to have Bruno as the face of the project for the future.”

Where does the future of Bruno Guimaraes lie?

Bruno Guimaraes has been one of Newcastle’s finest performers this season. He has had two goals and two assists so far this season. He has started in all 10 of Newcastle’s matches so far and is yet to lose a single one.

His current contract ends in 2026. Fortunately, this allows Newcastle a solid advantage in negotiations.


Former West Ham and Aston Villa player John Carew are on the edge of facing two years of jail because of tax evasion. He may also have to pay a hefty fine to cover up the tax.

Oslo district court prosecution has requested a 2-year jail and a fine of £45,353 for the striker.

Carew on his lawyer’s suggestion has pleaded guilty to all the charges.

Carew said:

I trusted him blindly. I have been convinced that he was right. He controlled me almost like a puppet,

I understand that it is grossly negligent of me to trust him so much, but that is why I have done it.”

However, the police attorney believes that John had many chances in the past to rectify the information given to the authorities.

John Carew’s football career

Having been born in Norway, he never really spend much time there playing football. He started his professional career by playing for Valerenga and then going to Rosenborg.

Although his journey to the top-5 league started with a move to Valencia. He played for Roma, Lyon, and Besiktas and eventually moved to Aston Villa making it the highlight of his career.

Other than this he had small spells with West Ham and Stoke City. On the international level, he represented Norway in 91 games, scoring 24 goals.
